Mount Desert, 1872: an early history of the Maine island that is now Acadia National Park. by George Ward Nichols.
Here is a sail around and a tour over Mount Desert--the famous island off the coast of Maine.
There are fogs, and stormy seas, lighthouses, and legends. The report shows how
soon and how enthusiastically appreciation for Nature developed in America, for the 1872
year of publication is the same year that Yellowstone National Park--called the world's
first--was established. Yet the tourist industry was already founded at Mount Desert.
Nichols portrays the people as well as the scenery--their occupations, lives, and sorrow,
but (unfortunately for him) he dislikes their fish and lobster! Reprinted from Harper's
New Monthly Magazine. Illustrations are mainly sketches by the author. 24 pages.
